Pure CSS Responsive Navbar – navigataur.css


navigataur.css is a pure CSS responsive navigation solution that converts the regular navbar into a dropdown menu with a toggle button when the screen size reaches a specific breakpoint.

Based on checkbox input and CSS media queries.

How to use it:

1. Download and place the stylesheet navigataur.css in the header of the document.

<link href="navigataur.css" rel="stylesheet" />

2. Create a checkbox input for the menu toggle behavior.

<input type="checkbox" id="toggle" />

3. The HTML structure for the responsive navbar.

  <label for="toggle" class="toggle" data-open="Main Menu" data-close="Close Menu" onclick></label>
  <ul class="menu">
    <li><a href="#">CSS</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Script</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">COM</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Example</a></li>

4. Override the default styles & breakpoints of the responsive menu.

  • Media queries should be edited in both style sections if you require a different breakpoint for your navigation.
  • Toggle class & menu anchor tags in list items have box-sizing: border-box style property to allow padding inside the container without conflicting with the layout.
